    Agreed. Not that there's anything wrong with traditional games but the themes, artwork, mechanics from games over the past 20 years can create a more enjoyable playing experience. You might be on edge hoping to score Mayfair in Monopoly but that doesn't equate to the team who are within a move or two of curing the final disease in Pandemic before one more outbreak pushes them over the edge :tongue:

    Any recommendations for two player games? Need some things for the gf and I to play together. Am looking at Hive Pocket and another one I can't remember. You had a god card and had to build buildings in 3 separate stages and your worker could only jump up one level at a time.

    Casual games or a bit more to it? There's any number of small card / dice based games but some wear off quickly. Pandemic is a good one. It's cooperative too so you two are playing against the deck.

    A mate got silvertower the other week, had a sit down with a few friends and played was heaps of fun, so used to playing with friends online, kinda miss the aspect of getting together and playing.

    Anyway Silver tower for around 4 people is a great game, would recommend.

    Yeah I've played pandemic, is it still fun with only two people? Probably looking at 20-30min games at the moment so more towards the casual side.

    Yeah Warhammer quest, once it's set up and the dice are rolling it's great.

    Only issue I have is I'm used to having computer games hold my hand in relation to effect and statuses ect ect, and sometimes I forget what items and cards I have, I feel like a dungeon master app or something on a tablet to hold my hand would be great for noobs like me.

    Only just saw this. Try 7 Wonders: Duel. Designed only for 2 players.

    I mean, the ultimate 2 player game is Twilight Struggle but that can be quite hard to get into.

    I scored the Scoundrels of Skullport expansion for Lords of Waterdeep and another expansion for Ticket to Ride; France and Wild West so we'll try them soon enough.

    We finally opened Castles of Burgundy and we enjoyed it. I think it'll get some game time over the next few months. It seemed like there was a lot to it but it's fine.
